Magazine Description

In this issue

With the roar now a distant memory and duck season done and dusted, this time of year can be pretty hard hunting - unless you’re chasing tahr and chamois in the Alps. The trophy potential for tahr at present has never been better: the old benchmark of 12 inches is long gone; 13 inches has become the new mark to aim for. I recently heard of DOC running a tahr search-and-destroy mission which took a 15½ inch bull some 80km north of the so-called allowable limit for the herd! Heads of this size are certainly becoming more common. As Mike McClunie’s article in our last issue highlighted, the big bulls are often likely to be hanging out in thick alpine scrub to avoid the heli-hunters - so it requires a change in tactics by us hunters. Willis Macbeth offers some sound advice in his Hunting through the Seasons article in this issue which concentrates on hunting the winter months, July and August.
